"Businesses of the Week"

Souza's Smokehouse

Na'Ono Fresh Roasted Corn


Souza's Smokehouse, owner Mike Kealoha

We basically sell smoked products from smoked pork to smoked marlin, and smoked ribs, We also make a smoked Marlin dip and we also sell plates of any smoked products we sell.

Where does your meats come from?

Our main thing is we try and utilize local products. Our meat is from Kahaluu. We try to use local pig farmers that we can get our meat from. The Marlin we get from a boat based out of Waianae, but they fish around the Big Island. 

Products prices?

Majority of our meats are all $10.00 a pound. The smoked Marlin is $10.00 a pound. The dips we have a 1/2 pound and 1 pound dips at $5.00 and $10.00. Our Prime Rib is a little bit more pricey. The meats look real good. It's $14.00 for a Prime Rib plate which includes a 1/2 pound of Prime Rib, some sauted onions, a nice Nalo green salad, and some rice.

Do you purchase any of your ingredients from local farmers?

All of the ingredients, as much as possible, we use all local. Like when we do our plates, all of our vegetables comes from this farmers market. So I walk around in the morning, grab whatever I need. All the ingredients I need and we utilize that. We're trying to support everybody in the market.

Your experience being a vendor at the Leeward Farmers Market?

I love it. I'm glad Dillan invited us here and we're glad we got to be a part of it. I would like to say please come on down to the farmers market and support everybody. Mahalo!

Mike and his Souza's Smokehouse Crew also have free taste samples availlable of all their meets and dips in their booth at the Nalo Farms Leeward Farmers Market. Check it out this Sunday!

Na'Ono Fresh Roasted Corn, Executive Chef/Owner Jerry "Kele" Smith

We sell fresh roasted corn. We use Kahuku corn if available or Aloun's corn to roast depending on what's available. We make our own flavored butters and our own seasoning mix. We have about 15-20 different varieties or combinations that we do. Our most common is butter with our garlic and herb seasoning which we make our own mix. Depending on what market we're at it varies on which is the most popular. It seems at this market a lot of people like to try the lemon butter with the Li Hing Mui seasoning. A lot of the kids when the family's come like to try that. We also do shoyu butter with furikake which is also popular with the kids. We also feature a lilikoi butter which we use fresh lilikoi and mix that in with our butter as well with a little bit of honey to kind of balance it. We serve that with parmesan cheese or our garlic herb seasoning.

Flavors for the spicy lovers?

For our spicy we do jalapeno butter with garlic herb seasoning and parmesan cheese. We also feature lemon butter with chili and garlic seasoning. So it's not real spicy, but it has a nice little flavor to it, a nice combination.

Original Flavors?

When we first started doing this we had about maybe five different simple stuff. From that five, we kind of branched it off and did different variations. Another one is the wasabi butter. We do wasabi with shoyu butter and we serve that with garlic herb seasoning. Our garlic herb seasoning is kind of our base. We get a lot of requests so that's the only reason why we have Li Hing Mui on there.

Doing business at other Farmers Market locations? Products?

We are also at the KCC Farmers Market on Saturday, and we do the Kailua Farmers Market on Thursday evening as well. We also do food items, We were actually going do some food here but we wanted to kind of feel it out and see what kind of clientele frequent the market. At the other markets like KCC, we do pancakes and crepes. Our signature dish is our pancakes. We do a haupia sauce with a triple berry compote and fresh apple bananas. We're trying to feel it out over here. We did shoyu pork one day and we were going to squid luau. We'll make adjustments as the months go on.


We want to thank Dillan and Dean from Nalo Farms for putting this together and bringing us on. Thanks to the school too, for letting us be here. It's a nice campus. So far the market is showing progress. It's getting busier. I'm hoping the busier it gets the more vendors are going to want to join in.

By the way. I tried the shoyu butter with furikake and the butter with garlic and herb seasoning last Sunday at the market. Wow! That was ono! I have about 18 more flavors and combinatons to go!
